What would the climate of the earth be like if the axial tilt of the earth were 156.5 degrees?

    I'd guess it to be about the same, although our day/night would be a bit shorter (assuming we rotated at the same rate...)

    There is no "axial tilt" of earth. That is heliocentric nonsense. The sun rotating around the earth gives us the seasons.

    Probably about the same, Relative to the ecliptic The north would be south and the rotation clockwise instead of counterclockwise. Sun would rise in west,,set in east, moon would be backwards, Seasons backwards, jetstreams would blow west instead of east, That sort of crazy stuff.

    The Earth would have the same angle with respect to the Sun as it does at the moment except that the positions of the Norht and South poles would be reversed. The seasons would not change very much but currently the Earth is closest to the Sun during the Northern Winter. In this new situation the Earth would be closest to the Sun during the Northern Summer, assuming nothing else changed, which would make the Northern hemisphere climate more extreme and moderate the climate in the South.
